No difference, although I'd probably just buy two sets of one, in the same order, instead because I'm not sure how TD's inventory system is set up to handle that particular bundle.

Which is better, this or the 3TB Seagate Barracuda for the same price? The Seagate is 7200 RPM compared to the WD's 5400, but I don't know how much that matters.

Depends on what you're using the drive for. If you're using it for just storage, network attached storage, etc then the WD Red will probably be superior because it's going to run cooler over time (and it's got some features that make it better suited for NAS).

If it's going to be your main drive, and have your OS/programs etc on it, then you'd probably want the 7200 rpm one (or get a SSD, my vote Big Grin)

How reliable are these high capacity drives? Looking on newegg i see this one isn't the only lower rated drive for its capacity. Seems like a great deal for the price for sure.

Since when are user comments getting promoted to front page? Should we all start trolling positive to get the sweet sweet taste of internet fame? ______ saved my marriage, cured cancer, and added size and girth to my love stick. A+++++++++ would drop the soap in the shower

Can;t speak for longevity (how long have these been available?), but I did buy 4 of them from TD and precleared them for 4 days. 0 errors for all four drives.

@gergev I bet those reviews are written by Seagate. Better look at Amazon reviews of both WD and Seagate.
